Beyond federal law and the Fair Credit Reporting Act, state and local laws in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut create a variety of specialized and sometimes inconsistent requirements for employers seeking to hire and make employment decisions. Please join us for an informative and interactive presentation focused on the various requirements of Ban the Box legislation, from advertisements for open positions to the interview process, mandatory disclosures and notice requirements, background checks and individualized assessments, and mandatory procedures in advance of taking adverse action.
The discussion will include:
  • Criminal Background Checks and Local "Ban-the-Box" Laws 
  • Pre-employment Credit History Checks  
  • Salary History Bans 
  • Disclosure and Authorizations Forms 
  • Background Check Scoring and Adjudication 
  • Pre-Adverse Action and Adverse Action Process
